|How did you begin making music? Who introduced you?
My interest in music started with my great-grandfather. I was about 5 years old when I discovered there was a guitar he kept in the closet. My great-grandmother would let me take it out when he was out fishing. Of course one day he caught me playing it but tried to teach me chords. After that I was in school band from 3rd grade until college. Along the way I picked up guitar at 12 and just learned every record I loved from classic rock to contemporary stuff. When I first went into the studio with one of my high school bands, I was more interested in the boards and gear than I was in actually recording my parts. I tried for a few years to get into any studio I could and learn the trade. Of course this was extremely difficult but I met a few engineers over the years that taught me the basics. After that it was getting into a studio when I could, self learning, and practicing.
I make music with playing piano ad lib.
My dad was very musical but he never introduced me to music. I was horrible at sports so we tried music and found I was good and enjoyed it.
My father was a semi-professional double bass player who took lessons from NHOP and he kind of made me play the guitar before I discovered that I liked the Trombone more. When I was 5 years old I played for a theatre with approx. 500 ppl present my first song "When I'm 64", which was still 59 years into the future :)
I began singing at the age of 4, church solos and mass choirs. By the time I was 9, I started writing poetry. I always participated in talent shows, mainly in quartets, but some solo features, but I always preferred working alone, (chuckles).
Around the fall of 2001 I wrote a segment for a vocal/spoken word performance. It rekindled the writing bug and since then, I've been at it...No one really introduced me. I always loved singing along with the radio and realized I sounded just as good (as them). They say you should do what you love & are passionate about, so...
I was six years old when my father put me in front of a piano keyboard.
My father was an Italian singer in the period 1930-1940. Then he was obliged to stop that activity for a number of reasons. But in my house I listened to music all day.
Music has alsways been a piece of my soul, and my grandmother used to sing with a wonderful tune. So therefore she inspired me to come upon making music. Micheal Jackson,Craig David, Brandy and Al Green were just a few of the artist that were also a big part of my compsoing of music. My grandmother and church choir introduced me to the beatiful tunes of music.
I grew up in a rather creative family. My father had a few bands he was involved with, singing and songwriting. I automatically gravitated towards anything creative and had a great love for music. I don't play an instrument, though. When I was young, hip-hop was growing as a medium and I wanted to be a part of it, but my writing style and subject matter were different than average. Plus, I had so many influences it was difficult to sound "typical". I decided to start my own group and have been going ever since.
Ron Stewart introduced me to the music business. We are both from Norwalk, CT and had mutual friends. We decided to start a label together. And, though that partnership never really panned out it got my juices flowing and I dug deeper into the business.
Though I'm musically talented as an artist I always wanted to work on the executiove side. Ron is now in the marketing department at Jive Records and we still stay in touch.
I started learning music when I was about four. An aunt's toy piano gift ignited my interest in music, and there's no turning back ever since.
Started playing when I was 9 years old. I actually wanted to be a drummer, but my parents asked my uncle to buy me a guitar (a quieter instrument).
Highschool teacher and incredible bass player Dave Tucker encouraged me to explore the instrument and find my own voice by introducing me to a more sophisticated repertoire.
I heard Jim Kelly (Australian Guitarist with Cross Fire and lecturer at Southern Cross University) perform with Cross Fire and Randy Brecker on trumpet. I dropped everything and committed myself to a life of music.
I think music chose me. I'm not sure I had a say in it.
About the age of 6 I got given a small fan operated organ. It all started there. The tune to Silent Night was the first thing I learned to play.
I began playing the drums really young in the year 1995 for 10 years along with the guitar. Then i decided last year to dedicate myself to vocal/strings only
I (Damian) began playing music when I was 13 and played in a variety of heavy metal and hardcore bands from 2007 onward. No Faith was founded on April 19th of 2010. The people who introduced me, would have to be an old friend who was once the lead guitarist of a past band of ours.
In Trinidad it's hard to not get into music, being surrounded by it at all times. It is a part of our culture, and our way of life.
